The Numbers Game

Just two months into 2007, the Trojans already have five commitments for next year's recruiting class.

With at least 22 scholarships available, USC continues to be much more aggressive in recruiting the nation's top junior prospects. More than a dozen scholarships have been offered, and this is how each position projects for 2008.

Quarterbacks

Graduating seniors: One
Possible early pros: None
Signed for 2007: One
Needs for 2008: One
Committed for 2008: None

How it looks: With the graduation of John David Booty, USC will have two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster - plus Garrett Green.
